wlien we convened I had the honor
of your confidence in being elected
Speaker of this House. Within
the last twenty-four hours matters
( have changed. A few minutes pre
vious to our coining together this
morning I was approached by a
committee from the Central Com
mittee of the opposition party, who
asked me to resign the Speakership

Simultaneous with the storm that

On account of action of the Re
publicans in caucus last night, there
was suppressed excitement in every
quarter down town this morning.
It seemed to be the general impres
sion that there would be a stormy
scene in the House on account of
the proposition of last night which
had for its object the ousting of
Fred V. Beckley from the Speaker
ship of the House and the placing
in the chair of Jonah Kumalac of
the Republican side.
1 It was a little after 10 o'clock
when Speaker Beckley went in at
the mauka door and quietly took
his seat. He rapped with his gavel,
calling the House to order, and
then ordered the clerk to call the
roll. This being done, he next asked
the clerk to read the minutes of the
previous day's proceedings. This
was done, W. J. Coelho interpreted
them into Hawaiian and then the
chair arose to make the speech
given above which sounds a war
cry and indicates a stormy session.
It is hoped that this afternoon
everything will le straightened out
and that the spirit of harmony

was shown a feeling that something
j to straighten out the difficulty
should be done at once. This was
the consensus of opinion. Just
what the action will be cannot be
foretold as the Republicans have
been busy reading over the rules ol
the House at the last session, to
learn just how they can act in the
The opinion gleaned outhestreets
from laymen were to the effect that
Beckley should be allowed to keep
his seat, while several attorneys
expresses the opinion that Mr. Beck
ley could be removed.
Naturally, the situation is the
talk of the town and there is a
great difference of opinion, although
the Republicans incline to the idea
that the work of the people can
best be done by proceeding im
mediately to business and doing
all in their power to prevent any

quietly and said he did not Ik'liev
he could think of vacating the scat
and when he made his declaration
in the House theie was no attempt
made to introduce a resolution in
any way affecting the chair. J
Mr. Beckley in finishing his
speech, announced that the next
thing on the program was the
choice of a vice-Speaker and Mr.
Chillingworth, knowing that the
situation was one that should be
carefully pondered before acting on
any motion whatever, moved that
the House take a recess until 2
o'clock, his intention being to give
the members time to talk over the
situation quietly and decide on the
best course to follow. He was
seconded by Mr. Andrade and the
motion carried, the Republicans
voting in a solid mass in the affirm
ative and ten hands showing the
mind of the Home Rule forces on
For a session fraught with such
danger of a sudden outburst of some
kind that might disturb the digni
fied demeanor of the House, the
situation was certainly one to be
wondered at. There was not a
single display of warmth and even
the speech of Mr. Beckley was de
void of any show of anger what
ever. For this, he gained the ad
miration of the Republican forces
and the people in the room. He
was perfectly calm but maintained
the stand he took with an under
current of determination.
Under the circumstances, Mr.
Chillingworth did the right thing
in the right place in moving for a
recess until 2 o'clock for by this
means time was given to all those
concerned for calm and cool delib
eration. (Srccily Animals.
It may be doubted whether those
of us who are able to obtain suffi
cient food without difficulty can
appreciate the craving for suste
nance experienced by sea birds and
other animals, which have often,
by the force of circumstances, to
fast for long periods. Gulls will
cat until they cannot fly, and when
they find pilchards on board a boat
will continue their feast until they
can only lie down and gasp. A'
superfluity of. food comes at such
long intervals that when it does
come the avian intellect reels at the
prospect, and what seems a horn of
plenty brings dire disaster. Seeing
that gulls and gauuets know no
better, we are not surprised to hear
of a John Dory, stuffed to the very
mouth, floating helplessly on the
surface of the water, unable to es
cape from a flock of sea birds which
have deprived it of its eyesight and
will quickly take away its life.
A snake which thrusts its head
through bhe palings to seize an un
wary frog, and finds itselt unable
to draw back again with the frog in
its throat, has wit enough to dis
gorge the amphibian and to deftly
draw it through by the leg so as to
swallow it on the safe side of the
palings; but probably a snake
which happened to be ou the wrong
side in company with a frog would
consume it on the premises and so
render itself uncapable of wriggling
through the bars. Longman's
